    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You can of coarse use your favorite meatball recipe for these, but the ingredients listed here makes a great mini meatball with lot of flavor, or see my Kittencal's Italian Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meatballs. Purchase the longer crusty rolls for this. You can prepare the meatballs and simmer in the sauce, then refrigerate until ready to use. Prep time does not include making the marinara sauce.

      Very very tasty sandwiches. I used your marinara sauce, and these were FABULOUS. Made recipe as listed and used mozzerella cheese, and black pepper. Easy to prepare, and is a keeper in my book. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
